I may have spoken too soon. We have a whole NEW and IMPROVED problem. Now they say that her throat is too small because of the radiation treatment in the eighties and she isn't strong enough to cough out the goop from the MRSA pneumonia and so the nurse is saying perhaps a tracheotomy type thing and a feeding tube and my mother is saying that will happen literally over her dead body and my brother is saying that there must be some doctor out there somewhere who knows what's going on and has access to other patients who had weird throat cancer radiation in the 80s and are now in their 80s and have MRSA pneumonia and I'm thinking, yeah, sure, all three of them. Jesus fucking sweet christ on a pogostick. I'm going to the hospital and there had better be a goddamn parking spot.
